Question quickly MUTE the audio?

If I just need to quickly MUTE the audio, how do I do this with my 2012 Focus Ti? There doesn't appear to be any "button".

If there isn't, Ford should have made the center of the volume knob on the Sony panel a push button that can mute/unmute the audio.

I don't think there is a mute, simply power it off. One touch and done.

How do you "simply power it off"?

Sorry, there is a red power button to the left of the cd opening if you have the Sony system. I can't speak for the others, but I would imagine it would be near the upper left portion of the face plate.

There is a frustrating delay on my system before the audio controls (other than "off") become useful on my MFT.

Seems to last just while MFT pairs with my phone. Which occasionally fails and it immediately falls back to a seemingly random radio station at an inappropriate volume.

Edit: Oh, you're talking about once it's been running for a while. My comment is a bit OT then.

My SE has a soft key mute button, at least in Radio mode. That probably doesn't help you, though...

With MFT you can also pause very easy.

I have found a short quick CC movement of the center volume knob goes straight to minimum volume. Mute accomplished, extra button not needed.

I would have liked to see a mute button on the steering wheel. Not a big deal, but anyone who has had one knows how useful it is.
